With Canada’s 150th anniversary and Montreal’s 375th birthday taking place next year, Destination Quebec is expecting tourism to La belle province to continue to boom.
“Quebec has enjoyed a fabulous 2016,” Destination Quebec’s Gillian Hall told an industry gathering yesterday (Nov. 16) at a Discover Quebec luncheon in Toronto. “Montreal will host over 10 million tourists, Quebec City was awarded the Cultural Centre of the Year at the Leading Culture Destination Awards in London, England as well as being named the top tourist destination in Canada by Travel & Leisure.”
From cultural activities, festivals, gastronomy, health and wellness, soft adventure, extreme adventure, cycling, golfing, hiking, kayaking, skiing, snowmobiling, snowshoeing, dog sledding, zip lining, rock climbing, wild life observation, to cruises and more, Hall says there is something in Quebec for all travellers.
“As Gillian said, really Quebec has everything, even multi-generational travel with activities for families, for seniors, for millennials, they are divided very well all over the province,” Destination Quebec’s Juan Pablo told PressToday.
Tourism partners on hand for the event included Carnaval de Quebec, Tourisme Cantons-de-L’est, Tourisme Montreal, Le Quebec Maritime, Tourisme Iles de la Madeleine, Tremblant Resort Association, Tourisme Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean, Tourism Eastern Townships, Tourisme Charlevoix and The Laurentians.
